It’s been a month since IT Martini Hour 4 drew IT Pros by the hundreds to BOMA and raised thousands for the King Arts Complex and TECH CORPS Ohio. Thanks to Motiondrift Films for putting together the video ACTION:

* Spring Break-Through: A mash-up of the evening starring YOU and your IT Pro colleagues, with a few choice words about diversity from Senator Ray Miller, Janis Mitchell, RC Wheeless, Sehul Patel, and Will Burrus. There’s also an intro to the demos of the hour: PerformanceWorks Portal, Toobla, YourLiveTrainers, TRN360, Recess, and dPop. It closes with PerformanceWorks Portal taking the IT Martini Community Choice Award and Version 100 taking the stage!

* Diversity Panel Discussion: Senator Ray Miller of Ohio’s 15th district moderates a thoughtful discussion with Janis Mitchell (CEO of Precise Resource), RC Wheeless (CEO of InsightETE), Sehul Patel (IT Director of Buckeye Ranch), and Will Burrus (IT Leader and Entrepreneur).

* PerformanceWorks Portal Demo: Kevin Gadd (IT Director of Commercialization at TechColumbus) kicks off the demo discussions with Dave Weaver by asking some questions about PerformanceWorks Portal, a web-based portfolio & project management platform.

* Toobla Demo: Kevin interviews Brian Link about Toobla, the social bookmarking tool that converged several live video streams from the event into a single on-screen widget.

* YourLiveTrainers Demo: Dan Falkenberg talks to Kevin about YourLiveTrainers: a live, online, interactive personal fitness training company.

* TRN360 Demo: Kevin moves on to Matt Jacobs, who gives an overview of TRN360 - a website that assists high school athletes in marketing themselves to colleges.

* Recess Demo: Yury Tsukerman gets questioned by Kevin about the simple text messaging paging system called Recess, being debuted by Holmes Mobile.

* dPop Demo: Kevin wraps it up with Eric Baker, who defines the ‘ultra-interactive’ experience and how dPop manages to deliver it.

Thanks again to the great sponsors of IT Martini Hour 4: Spring Break-Through, who made last month’s event a success: Quick Solutions, MindLeaders, CBTS, and Technology for Ohio’s Tomorrow. And stay tuned for an update about the next IT Martini Hour!
